Sub Atris Caelis

Rated 4/5 (80%) (21 Votes)

Mexican Death Metal group Infinitum Obscure has been around for well over 12 years and has six separate releases (two albums and some singles/EPs). Sub Atris Caelis, the band's 8-track sophomore album, was released by Deathgasm Records back in 2009. The strong flavor of old school Death Metal is present from start to finish and Infinitum Obscure offer a solid package of intense songs. Severe, piercing, and heavy, crispy riffs clash, in a good way, with melodic and dark moments that are accompanied by acoustic guitars and piano interludes. There was clearly an emphasis put on matching melody lines and wall of riffs seamlessly. They have succeeded almost perfectly, in my opinion.

Sub Atric Caelis is sort of a blend of Scandinavian and American-sounding old school Death Metal and one might be reminded of bands like Necrophobic, Sadistic Intent, Unanimated and Dissection. Infinitum Obscure are top notch, songwriting-wise.

What else there to say except Viva la Mexico! The underground extreme Metal scene in Mexico rules because of bands like Infinitum Obscure.
